What is a red notice?

Like the 6,798 other red notices currently issued by Interpol, the one targeting Mohamed Amra can be consulted directly on the Interpol website. It includes a photo of the thirty-year-old who escaped the day before in Eure, his identity, his physical characteristics (between 1.74 m and 1.80 m, bearded, brown hair, etc.) and the offenses for which he is wanted.

We thus learn that Mohamed Amra is wanted in particular for “complicity in premeditated murder by an organized gang” or “participation in a criminal association with a view to preparing crimes”.

Mohamed Amra had, in the past, been convicted of “burglary theft” or even “organized gang theft”. He was in pre-trial detention for his links to a case of attempted extortion and attempted assassination, and was also indicted, in another case, for “kidnapping and sequestration leading to death”. Finally, he is known to the courts for his involvement in drug trafficking.

What is a red notice for?

This red notice is sent by Interpol “to law enforcement agencies around the world” in order to facilitate the location of the wanted individual, explains the international organization on its site.

Authorities who locate the individual may then, under their own rights, make an arrest.
